Soledad and Maria Montelibano Lacson Ancestral House is a two-storey heritage house owned by the family of Montelibano Lacson sisters, Soledad and Maria, in Silay City in the province of Negros Occidental, the Philippines. Because of its cultural, architectural, and/or historical significance, it is one of the recognized and declared heritage houses of the Philippines by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP).
I went here at 4:39 p.m. on August 29, 2013 with my old office mates, Chenie and Lindsay. This was during our Silay Heritage Walk in Negros Occidental, the 24th province on my list.
Soledad and Maria Montelibano Lacson Ancestral House painted white and red, was built in the early 1900s and was declared as a heritage house (one of over twenty in Silay) pursuant to board resolution of the NHCP.
